LibriVox recording of A Lady's Visit to the Gold Diggings of Australia in 1852-53 by Ellen Clacy

"If you have visions of a middle-aged parasol-bearing lady smiling sweetly from her carriage as she tours Bendigo think again. In 1852, 20 year old clergyman’s daughter Ellen and her brother boarded ship for Melbourne then set off to walk to Bendigo. Dressed in her blue serge skirt which doubled as nightwear, she camped under a tent made of blankets, had mutton, damper and tea most meals and on arrival lent her hand to gold washing. And seemed to enjoy it !
And amongst other things she tells of colonial life , transportation, emigration and other gold-fields.
But you will need to listen to hear more about bush-rangers and orphans as well as what she did with her parasol." (summary by annise)

Subject: Interesting historical account
I didn't know much at all about the Australian gold rush until I listened to this book. It was an interesting historical account of one woman's experience and also gave a broader overview of the different gold fields and the effect of the rush on cities like Melbourne.

Librivox readers Lucy Borgoyne and Annise add authentic Australian accents to this duo-project.
